This series of short talks by the Yale historian and author ( Bloodlands, Black Earth, On Tyranny- all very good) is succinct, informative, incisive and timely. It should be watched by anyone concerned by the direction politics (not only in the US) is taking:

I first came across Dr Snyder by listening to his conversation with Sam Harris. I was impressed with his knowledge, the clarity & succinctness with which he discussed the subject, &, as you say, the timeliness. So thanks for saving me the bother of of the usual Youtube search rigmarole.

Worrying, to say the least.

The first clip would be worth posting in the Trump thread.

I give up on that thread , it is of no use anymore. And if this one becomes a copy of that, I'll ask the mods to lock it.
Its a shame, because I valued your input there.

Not something I could say about everyone... ^^

Why? Love or hate him, he was elected because a bunch of Americans voted for him.
The Orang Utan, as some US comedians refer to him, was elected because;

He promised jobs for joe six pack

He faced a fairly unattractive opponent

He promised to deport non- citizens

He promised to build a Great Wall along the Mexican border to keep drugs and gangsters out

He was knowingly involved in collusion with Russia to assist in swaying the already fcuked-up electoral college system.

Given the above it's no wonder a bunch of people voted for him.

How's he doing with all that so far?
